Around the Conference 




Three Atlanta area UCC churches were represented at the 
Pride Parade October 31st, Kirkwood UCC, Central 
Congregational UCC, and Virginia-Highland 
Church. Chris Glaser, interim minister of Virginia- 
Highland also served as parade marshal. 



Pleasant Hill Community UCC, TN, reported that they assembled and 
shipped nine clean up buckets for disaster relief, and Holy Trinity Community 

UCC reported that they had sent eight. These buckets are valued at $60 each. 
Are there other congregations that have sent clean-up buckets in? Let us know by 
contacting Connie and Bob Waidmann at cbwaidphtn@frontiernet.net. 

Eight women from the Women's Ministry of Community Congregational 
UCC, Montgomery, Alabama participated in the Women's Fall Retreat, October 
2-4, held in Wetumpka, AL sponsored by the Christian Women's Fellowship of 
the Christian Church Disciples of Christ. The theme for this event was 
"Knowing and Being Known: Deepening Your Connection with 
God". Rev. Diane Wood, Pastor of Village Christian Church in Auburn, AL, and 
Director of the Young Adult Ministries for the Region, served as resource leader 
and Keynote Speaker. Attending this event were Dorinda Broadnax, Cheryl 
Jarman, Miriam Perry, Velinda Perry, Mollie Reed, Cynthia Stinson, 
and Pamela Thornton. The Region gave three scholarships to these UCC 
women. This is a part of a continuing effort to promote ecumenical collaboration 
in programming among the UCC and DOC. 

Randy Hammer, the UCC pastor of United Church of Oakridge, TN, a 
community church, has let us know that he and five other members of the United 
Church will join about 18 members of the First United Methodist Church of Oak 
Ridge in a medical mission trip to Nicaragua October 24-November 1. He notes 
that he will be wearing his UCC shirts and representing the UCC as a part of the 
trip. The group will be providing medical and dental care, vision tests and 
dispensing supplies. 

Pilgrim Congregational UCC, Chattanooga celebrated its 50th anniversary, 
September 27th. Former pastor David Beebe spoke for the event, and reminded 
Pilgrim of it's a unique role in Chattanooga as a liberal inclusive church. Beebe 
reminded the church that "the broad issues today are how to be faithful to Jesus, 
injustice issues, in care for this planet, in laboring for peace, in remembering that 
the God who came in Jesus Christ loves the whole world and walks among us."
